Soda Butte Creek Bridge typifies the early design philosophy of the National Park Service, which was to use indigenous materials to harmonize man-made features with their natural surroundings. This philosophy is embodied in many of the park's Rustic Style buildings and structures.

There are two concrete girders which form a half-arch with a 112-foot radius on the flanking spans and an arch of the same radius on the center span. The girders measure 2'-8" deep by 18" wide. The top of the girders are form a curb 9" high. The flat slab is approximately l'-6" thick.
